CI Engineering Lunch & Learn Series: An adaptive and efficient approach to detect microbursts leveraging per-packet telemetry in a production network

April 14, 2023

On Friday, April 21st, at 2 pm Miami time, Jeronimo Bezerra, CIARA Associate Director, will be presenting at the CI Lunch and Learn community talks on Microburst Detection. The focus will be on an adaptive and efficient approach to detect microbursts leveraging per-packet telemetry in a production network.

What: An adaptive and efficient approach to detect microbursts leveraging per-packet telemetry in a production network
When: Friday, April 21st @ 2pm ET
Where: Zoom

Abstract: Short-lived bursts of traffic, known as microbursts, can lead to packet drops, jitter, and performance degradation potentially impacting data transfers. Detecting microburst events on production networks is challenging due to the sub-second monitoring interval required and the amount of data produced. We will present our adaptive and efficient approach to detect and store microburst events leveraging In-band Network Telemetry (INT) and an enhanced telemetry collector capable of adapting its routines to the bandwidth utilization. Field trials demonstrated our capabilities to detect millisecond-based microbursts and an efficient persistence data gathering approach with data reduction above 60%, while preserving good levels of accuracy … Read More

RedCLARA and its members NREN agree to boost the Earth Observation strategy

March 15, 2023

As part of the launch of the Digital Alliance between Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean, RedCLARA and the National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) signed an agreement to promote the adoption, training, deployment, and promotion of the Earth Observation Strategy in the region. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aims to deploy the Earth Observation Strategy presented in November 2022 in Montevideo, Uruguay, which includes efforts of the European Union Earth Observation Programme Copernicus, the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), the Earth Observation Framework for the Americas, AmeriGEO, and the Inter-American Institute for Global Change Research (IAI). The agreement was signed by RedCLARA, and its member networks RNP (Brazil), CEDIA (Ecuador), REUNA (Chile), CUDI (México), RENATA (Colombia), RedCONARE (Costa Rica), RAGIE (Guatemala) and RAU (Uruguay) … Read More
